The typical Italian Gothic building, the Cathedral of Florence, is dedicated to “Santa Maria del Fiore”. The church was designed by Arnolfo di Cambio (c1245-1302) who considerably enlarged the existing religious structure. Finished around 1367, the Cathedral was completely covered by coloured marbles like the earlier Baptistery, except for the façade that remained unfinished and was terminated only in the 19th century.
Description: Located in central london’s fitzrovia, lodging preserves the finest aspects of the historic building — formerly the berners hotel — yet reinvents the spaces within to create a dynamic fusion of old and new, past and present. combining the traditional character of the landmark with a simple, sophisticated design sensibility creates a seamless blend of charisma and ease, resulting in a feeling that cannot be pigeonholed into a specific time period or style. the hotel offers a social hub where guests and visitors can work, relax, socialize and dine all under one roof; behind the refined georgian exterior and majestic public spaces, there are two bars, a restaurant, meeting rooms, a 24-hour fitness facility and 173 secluded, intimate and luxurious wood panelled rooms and a buzzing lobby.
